How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good HVAC system means your home will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the best HVAC system, you may notice that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Brighton days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your family runs your HVAC and other operator preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The pros at D & D Heating & AC are here to share some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without calling for heating and cooling service.

Check for Closed, Blocked, or Dirty Registers
Check your rooms for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by objects, or that have dirt and debris built up dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be the culprit for uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, heated or cooled air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at undesirable temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you might be losing heated air throughout the winter and letting hot outside air in during the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Make sure you have adequate insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your home and the weather in Brighton.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and believe this means the fan will only run when required. What truly happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By keeping your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep the air circulating throughout your home constantly and, therefore, keep the temperature more uniform throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
For ducts that have leaks or holes in them, they could spell trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to work harder to do their job, and some rooms may end up cooler or warmer than other parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks by windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is a simple process.

Consider a Zoning System
Another thing you can do to fix how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s definitely more of a long-term project and a bigger investment than other means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning options for your home, D & D Heating & AC can help.
